Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for a career high 522 yards and six touchdowns to lead the black and gold to a 51-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Heinz Field.
Roethlisberger is now the only quarterback in NFL history to throw for 500 yards in a game twice. The last time he accomplished the feat was in 2009 when he threw for 503 yards in a win over the Green Bay Packers. Roethlisberger also wasn’t sacked in the game.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns in the win and rookie Martavis Bryant also chipped in two touchdown receptions as well.
The win was Roethlisberger’s 100th and he achieved that mark in his 150th start. Roethlisberger is now just the fourth quarterback in NFL history to win 100 of first 150 starts.
The win now puts the Steelers at 5-3 heading into the second half of the season and they will next host the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday. The winner of that game will take control of the AFC North division
